After the big storm last weekend I was walking around the yard surveying the damage (see previous entry!) and saw a small miracle. A robin has built a nest in my butterfly bush (a huge wild thing, that I won't let my neighbor prune) and wonder of wonders, she and all of her babies survived the 80+ mile an hour winds intact! Pretty impressive I think.
Stifel and Capra has a new portrait patron. I neglected to ask Patty if I could post her kids' portraits but I didn't think she'd mind if I put up a shot of the pups. Deborah Conn painted this whippets in watercolor from a photograph. Aren't they handsome?
My beloved sister and webmaster has been pushing me hard to get all of the goodies in my studio/warehouse posted on the web. Thanks to her charming nudging and speedy typing and webbing skills we have added DOZENS of my vintage hats. Scarily enough there are MORE to come. But next up, a plethora of purses!
Not quite as alliterative, but fun are these kitschy lacquer bowls. They are in excellent shape and are super vibrant! I have been busy tagging new items for this Saturday's Birthday Bash. Remember all of my items will be 20% off or more to say thank you for coming out. If you haven't been recently Saturday is the day. It is supposed to be sunny, the Farmer's market is in full swing and it should be lots o' fun. Join us!
